â€” â€” â€”
In District 4A-6 soccer, there is a definite difference between the upper division teams â€” Heavener, Fort Gibson and Poteau, who without a doubt are title contenders â€” and the lower division teams â€” Hugo, Stilwell and Westville â€” which are mired deep in the lower division.
The Hugo Buffaloes picked a bad time to roll into Costner Stadium on Wednesday as the Pirates were still upset after Tuesday night's defeat at the hands of the Heavener Wolves in double OT. Then, too, the Buffaloes were minus their starting goaltender, who didnâ€™t make grade and had to sit this game out.
The Poteau High School Sports Hall of Fame Committee met Wednesday night and elected an incoming class of 36 inductees to be enshrined next month.
The committee believes that they have an awesome Class for 2012. There will be players, coaches and people who have served their teams with pride and dignity from the 1940s, â€™50s, â€™60s, â€™70s, â€™80s, â€™90s, and 2000s inducted this year. Committee members present were Merl Moss, Pierre Guiellet, Doug Stone, Ronnie Soughton, Charlene McMillin and Jim Marsh.
ALTUS â€” It may have seemed like a long, six-hour bus trip going out for Wednesday afternoon's make-up road doubleheader against 15th-ranked Western Oklahoma State College for the Carl Albert State College Lady Vikings. However, the trip home probably didn't seem that way.
The Lady Vikings, who were run ruled 13-2 in six innings in the opener, knocked off the nationally-ranked Lady Pioneers 8-7 in nine innings in the nightcap.
The LeFlore County Bass Club had its third tournament of the 2012 circuit Saturday at Chicken Creek on Lake Tenkiller. There were 28 boats with 54 anglers who caught a total of 94 bass weighing a collective totalof 223.5 pounds. The average bass weighed 2.38 pounds, and 13 limits were caught.
The winning team was Joey Chitwood and Tony Parker, who caught 16.75 pounds of fish to earn $675. Among the fish was Chitwood's big bass, weighing 3.87 pounds to earn an additional $270.
HEAVENER â€” It ended up being a Heavener sweep of Poteau Tuesday at Harvey Stadium on the soccer fields. The Wolves got past the Pirates 3-2 in double overtime to seize control of the district, while the Lady Wolves blanked the Lady Pirates 2-0 in the opener.
The Poteau Lady Pirates won their home softball finale Tuesday afternoon by run ruling the Sallisaw Lady Black Diamonds 14-4 in four innings.
